    Another new thread. When we get near page 250 here, I'll start a new thread again.

    Link to part 3: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1726267

    Please Read for Valuable Information
    Welcome to the Disboutique thread part four!
    We are a bunch of ladies (and men) that share a love of Disney, boutique clothes and sewing! Even if you don't sew, please join in, you might just find a new passion!
    Be warned, this thread is addictive, and we don't stay on topic!


    "The bookmarks"
    has TONS AND TONS of FREE patterns and sewing hints and tips. Most all of the hints and links posted here will go into the bookmarks as well tons of things I've found on the internet. I update if frequently, so check back often. There is a search function, which is great if you are looking for something specific.

    Group Photobucket Account
    We have a Photobucket group with pictures of our creations:
    http://photobucket.com/disboutique
    Password: disboards
    For a detailed explanation, on adding pictures and tags click here:
    http://disboutique.blogspot.com/2008/05/adding-pictures-to-group-photobucket.html


    Each person adds their own pictures to this account. Please only post your own pictures of your own children.
    Please add tags to your picture so that they are easier to find. Right now, we are adding a description, such as Princess, Aurora, and what pattern it is ie: Portrait Peasant Top, Easy Fit Pants.... You can add up to 20 tags per picture, so go ahead and use a few if it is appropriate.



    We have made up a few "rules" along the way ;)
    1.Be nice, if someone isn't nice, ignore them "Where there is no wood the fire goes out."
    2.You MUST share pictures of everything (and unfortunately, we do mean EVERYTHING!
    3.NO APOLOGIZING for how your kids look. That includes wet hair, messy hair, dirty faces, wrinkled clothes etc....We have come to the conclusion that ALL of our children are beautiful, no matter what!
    4.No apologizing for messy houses. We like a good game of eye spy around here!
    5. No apologizing for being "off topic". We like to have fun here, and are often off topic.
    6. If you have a question, ask us, we'll do our best to help! Really, you can post questions here, we like that!
    7. If you ask a question and no one answers, don't be upset. Either, no one knows the answer, or your post got missed. Go ahead and ask again!
    8. The banana gets lonely dancing by himself, so there is a three banana minimum. We don't want lonely bananas on the DIS!
    :banana: :banana: :banana:
    (and, just so you know, I do a mean dancing banana impersonation!)
    9. Lots of the posters on here sell, but we are NOT allowed to talk about it on the thread. Check out signatures for Ebay and Etsy usernames, or just PM someone if you see something you like. :thumbsup2




    Abbreviations used:
    YCMT- http://www.youcanmakethis.com Boutique style patterns you can buy (Look for CarlaC's patterns, they are great!)
    CASE- Copy and Steal Everything
    If it's posted here, feel free to copy it for your own PERSONAL use. Please don't resell other people's designs without first asking them if it's OK.
    CAB- Copy and Butcher everything
    Voldermort- Code word for Ebay
    (We started out calling Ebay "The site that must not be named", and then it was suggested that we call it Voldermort or :wizard: for short.
    Targemort- Code word for Target
    Waldemort- Code word for Walmart
    Frankenpattern- To take several different patterns and put them together into one outfit


    HOW TO POST PICTURES

    1. Upload the pic of your choice to photobucket
    2. Resize the pic in photobucket click on the thumbnail of the picture, it will open up, then click (above the pic)> resize > 15" screen- it will make you verify that you would like to resize the pic (I like the 800X600 size pictures instead of the message board setting, it shows lots more detail)
    3. After the pic has resized, go to your album, below the pic that you would like to post, there are 4 different codes (email & IM, direct link, html code & IMG code) Click in the box that has the has the IMG code. It will look something like this http: xxxxxxxxxxxxx
    When you click on that box, it will light up in yellow, and say "Copied"
    4. In the thread on the Dis (in another open window), click on "post reply". When you are ready to post the pic, right click - a box will open, click on paste. This will paste the link that you copied from your photobucket account.
    5. Post reply. The pic should show up!


    [SIZE="7"][B][COLOR="Red"][U]MULTI QUOTE TUTORIAL[/U][/COLOR][/B][/SIZE]
    At the bottom of each post, you will see a little blue box with a + sign it it. If you want to multi-quote that post, you click the + box and then move onto the next post you want to multi-quote and click the + box. After you've clicked all the posts you want to multi-quote, click on "reply" or "quote". All of the items you want to respond to should be in the reply box. Just put your reply to each post after the [/quote] for each post.

    [SIZE="7"][COLOR="DarkOrchid"][B][U]How to make thumbnail pictures in your reply[/U]:[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE]
    When you click reply, the name of the picture will look something like this, but in [ _] brackets
    {IMG}http://1234.photobucket.com/albums/1234/nameofthepicture.jpg{/IMG}
    To make it a thumbnail, put th_ before the name of the picture, such as this:
    {IMG}http://1234.photobucket.com/albums/1234/th_nameofthepicture.jpg{/IMG}
    This generally only works for pictures that were uploaded to photobucket.

    Castle welcome to the world of nursing. By the way, really negotiate that starting salary. It's amazing what "figures" and incentives they can come up with!!

    Hi!

    So excited to be on to thread #5!

    I'm still working on the bowling shirt pattern - I've been a bit distracted by an impending move (the 3rd in as many years)! I'm trying to cuten up the house and make it look like it is a functional space for the average family. Truth is, it was built in 1900, has little closet space, and the fancy crown moulding is a major dust haven. Tomorrow I have to spread about putrid orange mulch in the name of curb appeal - loooong sigh...

    Hugs,

    CarlaC

    Woohoo!

    Congratulations!

    Arizona salaries and wages are significantly lower than the northeast and California. I feel your pain!

    Oh, joy!

    I want to move, but the market stinks. I'm solo in a 2400 sq.ft. house on 1/3 acre. Waaaaayyy too much work! *LOL*

    So I'm working on the cute factor and curb appeal so I will be ready to go when the market decides to climb upward again.

    Hmmm, now how do you figure that? Seems to me that since I found this thread, I keep finding a pattern, some fabric, a notion that I just HAVE to have for an outfit for my children. I cringe to think how much this habit is going to cost me!!!! :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    I just wanted to hop on this thread and say how much I love looking at all of the wonderful designs. You are really inspiring me to figure out what to dress my DD in when we head to Disney.

    My mom is the one that sews DD's customs but you girls make me want to take some lessons from her! :goodvibes

    Hey there Les Filles! DH is going to be in Scottsdale, AZ at the end of May and told me he would find time to go to a fabric store for me!

    I need help! Where should he go? I need character fabric, Star Wars fabric, and Mickey Fabric!! We just can't find it here in Canada. Please let me know what stores have the best selection, so I can call ahead and have them ready for him when he's there.

    I want to make the kids matching Star Wars outfits (DS=shorts, and DD wants a twirly dress), I need Mickey fabric for appliques and I'd like something Nemo, and pretty Princess fabric. Oh, and any place that has the best ribbon, for matching hairbows??

    Can you tell I'm excited! :banana: :banana: :banana:

    Merci Les Filles
    Stephanie

    I gotta tell y'all Florida girls that it FREAKS me out no end that the pay for jobs doesn't seem to be very high for y'all...The hubby and I talk a lot about packing up and heading South...but we can't afford to lose $$$...

    I don't even know what I'm talking about anyhow...my husband just renewed the TEN YEAR lease on his office building with the option to buy the whole dang place.

    :headache:

    AND to top it all off...my puppy is sick with KENNEL COUGH...the very thing he JUST got vaccinated for. Poor baby is feverish and coughing and retching. Oh I gave the doggie daycamp place a good talking to! I am just fit to be tied. They have a whole song and dance about protecting our pets and required Bordetella vaccines and blah blah blah...and my poor darling gets sick...I blame the poodle that was following him around with doe eyes!:mad:

    not a happy dog mom.

    poor baby.

    wow...grouchy much?
